Can I travel domestically?

All University-affiliated domestic air travel involving students, faculty and staff is suspended through at least June 30, 2020. Any nonessential travel, including between Penn State campuses, should be avoided in accordance with Pennsylvania’s statewide Stay at Home Order. Virtual meeting options, such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams, are encouraged.

If travel is essential, requests should be screened by and submitted through unit executives to Executive Vice President and Provost Nicholas P. Jones at provost@psu.edu and include a description of why the travel is mission critical. For the Applied Research Laboratory, essential travel will be reviewed by Senior Vice President for Research Lora G. Weiss at OSVPRTravel@psu.edu. For the College of Medicine, essential travel will be reviewed by Interim Dean of the College of Medicine Kevin Black at dean@pennstatehealth.psu.edu.
